FUNCTIONAL SAFETY RAILWAY

Course Overview

This session of the seminar is focused on the standards EN50126, EN51028, EN50129 and EN50159 and intended to provide an overview of the requirements for a safety demonstration. For this purpose, the entire life cycle of a railway system, starting with the system definition and identification of the hazards, determining the safety requirements and evidences of control of hazards is described.


Part 1: EN50126 (RAMS) - 1st Day
  • Overview: European directives, understanding standardization, standards in the railway signalling technology
  • Elements of RAMS and affecting factors
  • Risk / Risk Analysis
  • Safety Integrity
  • Life Cycle Model


Part 2: EN50129 (System Safety) – 1st Day & 2nd Day
  • Process of risk and hazard control ("Hour-Glass Model")
  • System definition, hazard identification, consequence analysis, risk assessment,
  • THR assignment, root cause analysis, common cause analysis, SIL assignment
  • Safety integrity levels
  • Quality Management
  • Safety Management
  • Safety demonstration
  • Identification of safety requirements
  • Technical and functional safety
  • Basic methods (FMEA, FTA, Markov models)

Part 3: EN50159 (Communication) – 2nd Day
  • Safety transmission system reference architecture
  • Overview of the threats
  • Overview of the necessary steps to control
  • Calculation of the hazard rate of the transmission channel

Part 4: EN50128 (Software) – 3rd Day
  • Definitions
  • Software safety requirement levels (SSAS)
  • Personnel and responsibilities
  • Life Cycle Model
  • Use of COTS software
  • Requirements of the phases (sections)
  • Verification / Validation
  • Techniques / measures
  • Application Data

Part 5: Common Safety Method on Risk Evaluation and Assessment – 4th Day

The European Commission Common Safety Methods (CSM) on Risk Evaluation and assessment regulation 352/2009 now provides a legal obligation and mandatory framework for the evaluation and assessment of risk associated with engineering, operational and organizational changes to the railway in EU countries. The part of the CSM-seminar course provides an understanding of the CSM regulation and risk assessment framework, as well as guidance on implementation.
  • Résumé of Risk-analysis principles
  • Introduction to the CSM regulation
  • System definition
  • Hazard identification
  • Risk acceptance principle and Risk Evaluation
  • Hazard management
  • Demonstration of compliance with safety requirements
  • The Assessment Body
